ViewSat launching across US via Galaxy 19

November 5, 2013

ViewSat, a global satellite transmission company, is poised to continue a successful period of growth with capacity secured across North America, reaching 7 million people.

Currently enjoying considerable coverage in Africa, Asia, Europe and the MENA region, ViewSat now looks to further increase the reach of the 100+ television and radio channels it supports, providing its clients based around the world the opportunity to broadcast across this region.

Awaes Jaswal, CEO of Viewsat comments, “To capitalise on the growth we’ve enjoyed throughout the world over the last six years, it is now the right time to move into this popular area. Our partnership with Intelsat means that we can offer our clients the opportunity to broadcast to over 7 million people via their Galaxy 19 satellite.”

Taking space on the most developed platform in North America, with the most languages and from the most countries fits well with ViewSat’s flexible attitude to transmission services. Boasting both entertainment and religious programming, ViewSat expects to attract new and existing clients with this additional capacity, offering its strong client base in Sub Saharan Africa to grow alongside the business.

Awaes continues, “We are confident that our reliable, professional and cost effective attitude to television and radio channel broadcasting will fit well with the quality driven marketplace in the USA. We are excited to open up this new frontier for our clients as part of our on going development strategy for ViewSat.”

ViewSat’s bouquet of channels will be transmitted via Galaxy 19 and broadcast to a viewership group of millions with compatible receiver boxes. ViewSat’s FTA (free to air) channel selection will further open this market and facilitate the growing audience in the USA choosing this option over the established Pay-TV setup.
